Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale

This isn’t your typical heartwarming holiday classic but a spooky, darkly comic, grim fairy tale rooted in ancient Scandinavian mythology. (When we first showed it last year, the audience lapped it up.) Set in northern Finland, it tells of a Santa found frozen in a block of ice who turns out to be more monster than merrymaker. With similarities to Gremlins and The Thing, Rare Exports is a surefire cult classic in the making. “The best anti-Christmas Christmas movie since Bad Santa.-Village Voice.
